English abstract
The aim of this paper is to present a theoretical framework that can help us make visible the aesthetic and artistic aspects of the teaching profession. The framework consists of the following aspects: a) the social- semiotic aspect or how the teacher communicates and how effectively in the class room in term not only of ideas but also relations and textual presentations as well as in terms of the teacher´s awareness of metacommunicational issues and sub-texts (aesthetic sensibility) b) the experiential aspect or the more vague, pre-reflexive, tactile and sensual experiences of critical situations (aesthetic experience) c) the organizational aspect or how teachers finds legitimate time to plan ahead and renew teaching materials and methods, as well as being able to improvise, motivate and inspire students within the time constraints of a highly scheduled everyday organization of school work (artistic working methods) d) the identity aspect or how to negotiate between personal and professional convictions and the expectations and demands coming from other actors which are part of ones life-world such as students, other colleagues, superiors, parents, guiding documents, national policies etc (the problem of authenticity). The method is mainly essaistic, using any kind of empirical material available ( “fishing method”).
